SLAVES join Madness’ House of Common festival lineup
House Of Common are delighted to announce that Slaves will be joining Madness on this year’s line-up. Madness frontman Sug
Slaves first emerged in 2012, working their way up through Kent’s toilet-venue circuit to become one of the success stories of the decade. Both the band’s debut album ‘Are You Satisfied?’ and 2016 album ‘Take Control’ smashed into the UK Top 10 on their releases and earned the band huge critical acclaim. Thanks to their charismatic mash-up of punky urgency and silly humour they bagged themselves NME’s Best Video award two years running, while also securing nominations for the Mercury Music Prize 2015, and for Best New Band at the Q Awards and NME Awards 2016. Along the way, they’ve won the hearts of The Streets’ Mike Skinner, stolen the show on last year’s NME tour, had Skepta join them on stage at Radio 1’s Big Weekend, played numerous stages at Glastonbury, and this August will be tearing up the main stage at House Of Common.
With the addition of Slaves to what’s already a deliciously broad lineup, House Of Common is gearing up to be one of the summer’s hottest events. Playing host to curator Madness’ only London live date of 2017, the event line up includes the likes of De La Soul, General Levy, Toddla T, Dawn Penn,Nadia Rose, Craig Charles, Hackney Colliery Band, Soul II Soul, Norman Jay, Dennis Bovell, Sherwood & Pinch, Mungos HIFI, Venum Sound and very special guests The Skatalites.
